Application for Sociologist

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a Doctorate of Sociology graduate with a strong interest in mass and social media, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently a Research Coordinator at the University of Sunnybank’s Office of Media Studies, where my focus is on the role and influence of mass media on millennials. Prior to this, I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology, where in addition to instructional and lesson planning, I graded papers and tests, proctored labs, and held office hours.

As well as my instructional duties, I assisted with the research and writing of "Chapter 2: Democracy and the Media" in Erick Miska’s (2017) Society and the Media in the 21st Century (Persimmon Press). 

In addition to 6 years of research and teaching and my recent doctorate, I hold a Master of Sociology and Social Research and a BA in Psychology and Sociology.

I have enjoyed my time at the University of Sunnybank, and am grateful for the excellent research and teaching opportunities offered. I now seek a stimulating role that will enable me to draw upon my sociology and academic background in an applied setting.

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps. 

Yours sincerely,

Amy Wall
